LIMITED EDITION RUTH
This is a limited edition print from a mixed media artwork portraying a woman cabbie from the 1940s.
In the original I worked with gold leaf, embroidery and acrylic paint to honor her and speak to the irony of being documented by a photographer but not worthy enough of documenting her name.
I worked with traditionally decorative or “female” materials as another means to celebrate this unknown, unsung woman.
This is an 8 x 10 giclee print with 23 karat gold leaf on the stripes. Each of the 25 available prints are numbered and signed.
